lolly.jpgLil Wayne’s “Lollipop” is your No. 1 single this week, and the first chart-topping single of his career. Hey, look, a sign that Tha Carter III might actually not get pushed back to October 2009! (Also, if anyone chalks this bit of success up to blogs, they’re going to get a kick in the shins.) [Billboard]

    Could you just kick The Shins instead? That would make my day.

    @Rob Murphy: Damn you for stealing my joke.

    When’s the last time a U.S. #1 broke the 5-minute mark even in its radio/video edit version? I mean, really my biggest issue with “Lollipop” is just that it is fucking endless.

    @Al Shipley: Agreed.

    @Al Shipley: To answer my own question, the radio edit of “What Goes Around…/…Comes Around” was over 5 minutes. Sure doesn’t feel as long as “Lollipop,” though.
